COVID-19 has revealed the unfathomable hardships many people in Melbourne are facing today. People in severe poverty, kids living on the streets, violence against women, addictions and mental illness.
Feeling powerless to effect any change, I’ve decided to auction one of my artworks each Wednesday on my Facebook page throughout August.
Art-19 auctions will see all proceeds going to Berry Street to support children, young people and families in crisis. The economic damage of this health crisis will be long-lasting and I truly believe this is the time for Melbournians to come together with generosity of heart and spirit to financially support the most vulnerable in our community.
Please help me to help those in need. Best wishes Gemma
Throughout the month of August I will be auctioning 4 of my beautiful artworks with all proceeds going to Berry Street.
One painting every Wednesday in August will be auctioned from my facebook artist page from 10.00 - 9.00 pm
'Steph' will be the second painting up for Auction, on Wednesday the 12th of August via my facebook page. The auction will run from 10.00 - 9.00pm. This artwork is an oil on canvas in a wooden box frame 32 x 32 cm, valued at $400.
If you do not wish to bid in the facebook auction you can purchase the artwork pre auction with all proceeds going to Berry Street and I then put a different artwork up for auction.
